Biography

Locque is a brutal killer who was originally involved with drug syndicates in Marseille and Hong Kong, eventually becoming an enforcer in the Brussels underworld. He was arrested and sent to prison in Namur, Belgium; however, he broke out after strangling his psychiatrist. Locque is known to leave a dove pin on his victims after killing them, although that appears to have been part of his attempt to frame Milos Columbo, who is known as "The Dove."

Locque is first seen at the home of Hector Gonzales, where he pays Gonzales on behalf of Kristatos for killing Melina Havelock's parents. The Havelocks were on a special assignment to find a sunken ship that holds ATAC, a machine used by the Ministry of Defence to communicate and co-ordinate the Royal Navy's fleet of Polaris submarines. He kills a male guest in the swimming pool at Gonzales's mansion - the first of the killings he commits in the film.

After Melina assassinates Gonzales, Locque takes the cash back. Bond later follows Locque to the Alps where he is attacked while skiing by both Locque and another hitman. Later, Locque returns and kills Luigi Ferrara, Bond's Italian contact, and leaves his signature dove pin for Bond to find in the his parked Lotus Esprit where Ferrara had been sitting while Bond was visiting Bibi Dahl. Locque killed Ferrara by slitting his throat with a knife.

After going to Greece, Bond learns from Columbo that Kristatos is working for the KGB and attempting to find the missing ATAC on their behalf.

Columbo told him this after he had Bond captured just as Locque was preparing to shoot him on a beach where he had already run over and killed Countess Lisl von Schraff, having presumably been alerted to them by Apostis, who had driven Bond and Lisl to her house in his car and overheard the conversation between them about Kristatos. Bond had managed to avoid being killed by Locque by kicking a gun from his hand, while Locque's armed accomplice was gunned down by one of the four men who captured Bond on Columbo's orders.

On a mission to prove that it is Kristatos, Columbo involves Bond in a raid of one of Kristatos's opium warehouses in Albania where Locque is found inside. During the ensuing battle between Kristatos's and Columbo's men, Locque guns down several of the latter's thugs. He then sets up a booby trap by attaching a detonator to one of the large sea mines in the warehouse itself in an attempt to kill Bond and Columbo, which fails but annihilates all the raw opium stored inside. After attempting to escape, Locque becomes trapped in his Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL teetering on the edge of a cliff after Bond fired a shot through the windscreen and wounded Locque's arm. Bond subsequently tosses Locque his trademark dove pin that he left on Ferrara and then kicks the car over the edge, killing Locque in the fall to the rocks below. His body is seen falling from the car when it lands on the rocks.


Hector Gonzales

Affiliation Herr von Hammerstein (short story)
Aris Kristatos (film)
Portrayed by Stefan Kalipha

Hector Gonzales is a character from the Ian Fleming short story "For Your Eyes Only" and the homonymous film, where he is portrayed by Stefan Kalipha. In both he is a Cuban hitman with no particular style or modus operandi.

Short story biography

In the short story, Gonzales is hired by Herr von Hammerstein, a Nazi war criminal, to kill a Jamaican couple, the Havelocks, so von Hammerstein could get their property. James Bond is then sent by M, who was a friend of the Havelocks, to track down von Hammerstein. In Vermont, von Hammerstein is killed by Judy Havelock, the dead couple's daughter. In the shootout that follows, Bond kills von Hammerstein's henchmen, including Gonzales, and escapes with Judy.

Film biography

In the film, Gonzales is hired by Emile Locque to assassinate oceanographer Timothy Havelock and his wife Iona, as they were working secretly for the British to recover NATO's ATAC system from the wreck of the St. Georges. Having brought the couple's daughter, Melina by a seaplane to the Havelock's yacht, Gonzales makes a second run over the boat and uses his plane's hidden machine guns on the Havelocks' boat. Only Melina survives, and she describes him to the Greek police, giving MI6 their only lead to begin investigations. Bond is sent to Gonzales' poolside estate in Madrid to interrogate him, where he sees him at a party being paid a large sum of money by Locque. Bond gets captured and ordered to be killed by Gonzales. However, a vengeful Melina, hidden in the bushes, shoots Gonzales with a crossbow, killing him and enabling Bond to escape.

Affiliation KGB
Portrayed by John Wyman

Erich Kriegler, portrayed by British actor John Wyman, is a East German biathlete and KGB thug, who is hired by Aristotle Kristatos to kill Bond and deliver the ATAC submarine tracking device from the sunken British ship to the Russians.

He tries to catch Bond in Cortina twice, first by pursuing him in a ski chase through the Italian alps (firing shots at him before unsuccessfully trying to hit him by throwing the gun), then (joined by two other men) by attacking him dressing as a ice hockey player where Bond has just said farewell to Bibi Dahl. He is next seen days later aboard Kristatos' yacht and helps capture 007 and Melina Havelock. Later in the St. Cyrill monastery, he meets his death by being shoved out of the window in a fight with Bond using a spiked candelabra, falling all the way to the bottom. [1]
